Where to live in North London?
I will be moving to London in January and am wondering where to live. I need to be located in North London area, but don't want to be too far north, so I can get into the center easily. I also need to be well connected to get on the M25 fairly easily.
I would like to live in a place that is self-contained (restaurants, shops etc), can do everything in the neighbourhood, and that is safe, and has a young professional crowd. Am I asking for too much? ;-)
I was looking at West Hampstead area, or Crouch End. Any opinions about those areas, or others around?
Thanks a lot!
